Marathon Flat Racer:
The Marathon Flat Racer is engineered with an aerated insole and seamless knitted upper for enhanced ventilation and comfort, and its super-lightweight construction makes for a faster run. This is also the shoe that earned gold medals for Maxed runners, Warinyane Lebopo (2nd), Teboho Sello (3rd) and Moeketsi Mosuhli (10th) at the 2017 Old Mutual Two Oceans Ultra Marathon.

Marathon Racer
The Maxed Marathon Racer is lightweight, flexible (225g UK9) and is best for faster-pace running and race day runs. It features a contoured and aerated insole and mesh upper for improved ventilation. The Marathon Racer is the shoe worn by record-breaking, down-run Comrades winner 2016, David Gatebe, and three 2017 Comrades Marathon gold medallists: Gift Kelehe (3rd), Teboho Sello (7th) and Prodigal Khumalo (8th).

Marathon Trainer
The Maxed Marathon Trainer is constructed with a durable rubber outsole, dual-density heel and forefoot cushioning for enhanced comfort, and is ideal for mid to high mileage runs. The Marathon Trainer made its Comrades debut in 2013, and it was here where it earned its first gold medal when Marina Zhalybina wore it. The Maxed Marathon Trainer has subsequently earned Comrades Marathon runner Charles Tjiane Comrades gold medalist in 2014 and 2017.
